Results of pheromone and sticky trap catches can be viewed here.

Corn earworm: Corn earworm moth activity has deceased across all trapping locations over the past two weeks, and particularly last week with the cooler temperatures. Activity is significantly lower than this time last season.

Beet armyworm: BAW activity decreased slightly in most areas, but moth captures remained fairly steady in the easy county growing regions. Activity is significantly lower than this time last season.

Cabbage looper: Cabbage looper moth activity remains light compared to last year, and remains unusually low for this time of the year.

Whitefly: Adult movement continues to decrease with the completion of melon harvests.

Thrips: Thrips movement is on the decline in most areas, with the exception of slightly higher activity in traps near Ave 39E.

Leafminers: Adult activity is low area wide.

Aphids: Aphids are consistently showing up in many locations moderate numbers and on the rise in the Yuma Valley. Anticipate higher numbers showing up in fields with cool and windy weather.
